Cable TV FAQs

Q: My TV only shows a hand full of channels.
A: repeat Steps above

Q: Will my TV work?
A:Most televisions manufactured after 2006 have a QAM tuner built in and should work well with our system.  Televisions older than 2006 will need a digital tuner box.  Based on testing on other campuses, an iView 3500STBII Multi-Function Digital Converter Box has been found to work sufficiently. This manufacturer/model is only a suggestion as TWC cannot speak to the manufacturer’s quality control. There are other manufacturers/models of varying prices and quality that you may choose to try. These can be purchased through Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Kmart and other Electronics stores and online.


Q: My TV shows the channel line-up in a different numbering sequence. Am I getting the proper feed or is the TWC digital channel line-up incorrect?
A: If given a choice of STD, HRC, or IRC for auto-scanning options please select STD. Some digital television sets have tuners within them that change the channel numbering sequence even if scanned with STD. All channels should still be able to be received but may show on different channel numbers than what is shown on the TWC digital channel line-up chart posted online. This channel line-up variance is a product of the specific TV's tuner and is not an item that TWC can control. We have encountered this issue with Samsung but other manufacturers may do the same. If you are missing multiple channels within the line-up please let us know and we will work with you to resolve the matter.

Q:  I have a Westinghouse TV and can’t get any TV channels to come up.  What do I do?
A:  You will need to get a manufacturer’s code.  To get this choose information start to scan, go to QAM, on your TV you will see a phone number to call to get your code.   You will have to give your TV serial number and then you will receive your code.  Enter the code in the TV remote when prompted.
